"The abundance in this arrangement is beautiful," said Jerry Rose, owner of the eponymously named florist on Maplewood Avenue. "I call it 'The Abundance of Love.'"
Consisting of a collection of roses, including standard roses and spray roses, and two shades of tulips (red and apricot), the arrangement is classic enough to send to your mother -- with just enough heat to satisfy your spouse.
Rose said that for Valentine's Day, "people want pretty. I think they just want beautiful arrangements."
This one more than fits the bill.
There's still time to place your Valentine's Day order.
